Grafana Integration

Grafana is an open source metric analytics & visualization suite. It is most commonly used for visualizing time series data for Internet infrastructure and application analytics but many use it in other domains including industrial sensors, home automation, weather, and process control.


What does Opsgenie offer Grafana users?

Use Opsgenie’s Grafana Integration to forward Grafana alerts to Opsgenie. Opsgenie determines the right people to notify based on on-call schedules– notifies via email, text messages (SMS), phone calls, iOS & Android push notifications, and escalates alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed.

Functionality of the integration

  • When an alert is created in Grafana, it creates an alert in Opsgenie.
  • When the alert is closed in Grafana, the related alert is closed in Opsgenie.
